Most of you know that I use my slow cooker a lot because it is just so easy and I’m all about easy when it comes to the kitchen. Yesterday I tried a new recipe out and it turned out really well so I’m going to share it with you because I’m just nice like that ;>)
Slow-Cooked Pork Loin
1 boneless whole pork loin roast (3.5 to 4 lbs)
1 tbsp canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 celery rib, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 cup water
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsps Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Cut roast in half. In a large skillet, brown roast in oil on all sides. Transfer to a 5-qt slow cooker. In the same skillet, saute onion and celery until tender; add to slow cooker.
In a small bowl, combine gravy mix and water. Stir in the remaining ingredients; pour over pork. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees and meat is tender. Skim fat from cooking juices; serve with roast.
My notes: okay so I’m way to lazy to brown my meat beforehand so I skipped this step and it still turned out nicely and no one was the wiser…shhhh it will be our secret.
